Although Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre's (CPAC) much-loved annual WOW Festival is not being held in-person this July, the venue is inviting creative youngsters to join them in the digital realm for the WOW Festival At Home, available from Wednesday 15 July.

In order to keep the community safe, CPAC has moved this year's WOW Festival online, offering a broad range of activities covering theatre, art, Storytime sessions and even dance for FREE.

"Despite the past few months of COVID-19 lockdown, we have continued to connect with our audience through a packed online program for the whole family - including comic creation, Claymation and other video workshops for the kids," CPAC Director Craig Donarski said.

"And now our WOW Festival At Home dials up those digital delights to a new level and the best bit is, you can join in from anywhere.

"Keep an eye out and you'll even catch me in a Storytime cameo sharing one of my favourite books."

CPAC's online video content will be complemented by a comprehensive Creative Pack, full of fun things to make and do, and available for download from 15 July or in print form by request at the venue.

The Creative Pack has been designed to guide parents and guardians through the materials their young artists will need, how to work alongside their child and also discuss the activities being completed to help everyone make the most of them.

It's suitable for all ages up to 12 and among the projects on offer are slime making, learning improvisation using ordinary objects as props, colouring-in, a gallery tour and much more.

The WOW Festival At Home has also connected with theatre groups across the country to offer online theatre experiences.
